Connection speed?


By using the dial-up networking to setup a connection to any ISP, the connection speed may be different each time?

Thus, how can I know the exact connection speed of our modem to the ISP?

The speed will be the baud rate of Ur modem. So at what rate Ur modem is configured, that is the speed with which modem tries to connect to ISP.

VinExpert: Well, sort of.  If you have a 14.4K baud modem at your end and a 9600 baud modem at your ISP, guess what your speed is going to be.

cplau: Usually the dialog box which tells you that you have connected tells you the speed.
SAMPLE: RasBaud.exe Obtains the Baud Rate of an Existing RAS Connection Programmatically
